A Nice Italian Couple: NW Lovejoy & 13th – Portland, OR

September 19th, 2012 by Emir

It always breaks my heart to see red hot sports cars all by their lonesome. It’s kind of like a model with no one to hang out with on date night. These two make a menacing couple don’t you think? Perhaps they met through an online dating service for exotic Italians.

Car Spotting in The South of France

August 16th, 2012 by Stu

Editor’s Note [8/19/12]: We mis-ID’s this luscious prancing horse (above). Our friend Jake set us straight… it’s actually a Gemballa-tuned Enzo, not an FXX. I guess this owner will have to make due with his slightly less advanced million dollar race car. Hey, somebody’s got to do it. 

———————————————————————————————————————————————-

Car spotting at its finest…in the South of France and Monaco. These tasty shots are from the garage of the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat and the equally choice Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo

Above, Ferrari’s absurdly exclusive FXX. An Enzo on Steroids, the FXX was engineered exclusively for the purpose of garnering enthusiast feedback and providing VIPs with access to the brand’s latest racing tech.  Kind of like an R&D think tank for Ferrari’s best customers. If you can believe it, buyers (all 29 of them) fork over $1.8 million to track the car on select days set forth by Ferrari. Data-monitoring and telemetry technology not only allow the driver to improve performance, but also provide Ferrari with actionable data to improve the FXX and future road-going Ferraris. Oh yeah, and it only takes 100 milliseconds to shift

More shockingly exotic vehicles below…Aston Martin One-77, Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster, Mercedes SLS AMG, and a charming Morgan 4/4

Thanks for the awesome spots Danny!

Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona: NW Alder & 17th – Portland

July 31st, 2012 by Emir

Compared to the golden era of automotive design that defined 50s and 60s car culture, it’s safe to say that the 70s weren’t exact a watermark decade for style on 4 wheels (don’t get offended…you know I’m right for the most part). As it often does, Ferrari snubbed its nose at the trend when they unleashed 365 GTB/4 into the world as a replacement for the stunning beautiful 275 GTB. Its striking design is characterized by a dramatically long hood and short rear deck. Sports Car International Magazine liked the car so much they named it as their top pick for the decade back in 2004. We tend to agree!

Happy gazing…

Ferrari FF – Madison Avenue, NYC

April 4th, 2012 by Stu

The life of a traffic cop isn’t glamorous. In fact, these civil servants must endure aggression and generally hostile behavior from irritated motorists all day long. There’s even a reality show about it. That’s precisely why this colorfully garbed gentleman didn’t skip a beat when it came to write up the owner of this new Ferrari FF parked on Madison. Hell, it’s  probably the most fun he’s had in weeks.

Maybe this well-to-do owner will wise up and feed the meter next time.

Garage Queens: Ferrari F430 Spyder – East 54th St., NYC

September 15th, 2010 by Stu

This isn’t the first time a prancing horse has nestled its way into the primo parking space you see here. A silver 612 Scaglietti usually occupies the spot. Perhaps the owner traded the nose heavy V12 Scaglietti in for this sportier, mid engine V8 Spyder. Or maybe he owns them both and was feeling a little saucy today, what with the nice weather and all. Or maybe it’s a different owner altogether and parking lot management simply makes a habit of putting the good stuff out front. Either way, we say thanks for positioning the car just prominently enough for all of us to drool over on our way to work each morning.

Ferrari F40 – Monterey, CA

August 30th, 2010 by Emir

I spotted this larger than life Ferrari F40 in Monterey, after all the Pebble Beach fanfare had come to a close. Meant to serve as a tribute for the brand’s 40th anniversary, F40 was actually the last car commissioned by Enzo before his death in 1988. The slippery, Pininfarina-designed body, whose advanced aerodynamics helped it to become the first road legal production car to break the 200 MPH barrier, is every bit as captivating as it was back in 1987 when F40 debuted as the brand’s unabashed halo car. Yes, after more than 23 years, F40 still manages to look more exotic and progressive than many of today’s exotic sports cars. The owner of this beautiful example was a little squeamish when I approached, camera in hand. He wasn’t too interested in talking shop with me, which in my experience makes him a rare exception to the rule when it comes to owners of exotic, highly collectible cars like this. But I managed to fire off a few shots before the twin-turbo engine roared to life and peeled off, leaving only the sounds of a hand-built Italian V8 in its wake.

Ferrari California – East 76th Street, NYC

May 28th, 2010 by Ian

The name California might sound familiar but the new drop top is anything but typical for the Italian fabricator of automotive lust. With California, the list of Ferrari-firsts is long – among them, the first front-mounted V8, first 7G dual clutch gearbox, first use of a retractable hardtop, and first multi-link rear suspension. I think there is however a couple of familiar family traits we can all agree have carried over nicely into the all-new model. It’s damn sexy looks and ability to make people want one.

Ferrari 550 Maranello – Mullholland Drive, Los Angeles

February 3rd, 2010 by Ian

The gear heads at Blackhorse Motorsports are coo coo for Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Seriously, if Weber carburetors and hand-built 12 cylinder engines were a drug, these guys would be in the running for an appearance on A&E’s hit show Intervention. Anyone who has walked by their massive showroom on La Cienega knows this first hand as the place is brimming with valuable and rare Italian exotics. Good thing for you, Blackhorse is also a huge Man on the Move fan – the fellas submitted some choice pictures from their in-house collection. This black F550 Maranello, like most any other Ferrari or proper sports car, could not look more at home on the Mulholland twisties. More drooling after the jump…
